It seems that game developers are leading an arms race among themselves. With the evolution of games comes the evolution of the most ridiculous weapons you can think of. From grannies exploding to forced dancing, here are seven weapons that will take your enemies to the eternal hunting grounds. Or at least let him seem very surprised.
Explosive Grandma – Worms (1995)
The grannies are fantastic. They fill you with candy and delicious food and don’t stop until you get home. However, as a small child, you knew that you should not play with grandmother. Because somewhere behind this soft wrinkled face is a spicy aunt who stops at nothing.
Worms’ explosive grandmother doesn’t like being gentle.
Worms has long been known for its absurd weaponry. Sacred pomegranates, super sheep, things like that. But the most ridiculous weapon must be the explosive grandmother.
She is slow, whispering towards you in her pink nightgown and before you know it, she explodes with a violent blow. This grandmother leaves nothing of the opponent at all intact.
2. Sheepinator – Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003)
Imagine that you are a faithful servant of the forces of evil, patrolling your base. You slow down your rounds, keep an eye on the prisoners. Until you see a Lomax jump out of the shadows. Before knowing it, you give a surprised cry of distress.
You have become a sheep.
You have to accept fate and your new warm white wool coat. Because you are lucky. Your colleagues face a less favorable fate.
They were turned into black sheep. And everyone knows that black sheep have the genetic predisposition to explode. So, before you find a quiet corner in a nearby meadow, you can quickly get out of the hooves. Wool is doing well, believe us freely.
The Ratchet & Clank series has of course even more absurd weapons, like the Quack-O-Ray and the rubber chicken.
Cluckshot – Gears of War 3 (2011)
Chickens are versatile. Just think of eggs, chicken soup, KFC, and inspiration for hanging your car. But can they also be used as a weapon?
Gears of War thinks so. Gallus Gallus Domesticus is essential in the battle against the Desert Locust. Chickens like to eat grasshoppers.
Here is the grenade launcher simply known as the Cluckshot. Our feathered friends fly towards the enemy and explode in a mist of feathers and pieces of locusts. You get this weapon from a chicken with a pirate hat. No seriously.
